Catherine McKenzie was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. A graduate of McGill University and McGill Law School, McKenzie practices law in Montreal. Her novels Spin and Arranged are International Bestsellers. They, along with her third novel, Forgotten, will all be published in the US by William Morrow in 2012.

McKenzie applied the Page 69 Test to Spin and reported the following:
If I do say so myself I think page 69 is very representative of the rest of the book. Katie – the main character – is getting a tour of the rehab facility and all the elements of her personality at that point are on display – cynicism, sarcasm, humor (I hope) and bucking against authority. I think (hope) if a reader read this page at random they’d want to read on: you can tell she’s being shown around a rehab facility, but why is she there? There is also a hint that there’s a celebrity in the facility at the same time, who is it? Katie doesn’t seem to want to be in rehab, so why is she there? Read on to find out…
